I'm not the one to answer your question, but I do have a couple of

Given I've not noted anyone else complaining about a similar situation, I
would suggest:

1.  Delete the entire version on your Mac.
2.  Download the same version again and re-install.

It could be possible that you have a corrupted download that caused some
faulty code with the instance you downloaded before.  If this doesn't fix
the problem, say so and I suspect someone with respond who is more familiar
with the Mac version.  BTW, 1.3.9 seems to run well for everyone that I've
heard talk about it, as well as for me.
